San Antonio Bank Fraud Defense Attorney
With our current economic crisis, federal agents are vigorously investigating and prosecuting high profile individuals as well as average citizens involved in various financial crimes. Bank fraud and other crimes involving deception are serious charges that can result in very harsh penalties — if not handled effectively.

I am criminal defense attorney Kerrisa Chelkowski and I have extensive experience in representing clients in state and federal cases arising from bank fraud allegations. A former prosecutor, I know how the state and law enforcement develop cases against defendants. However, with this experience, I am better prepared to help my clients fight the charges of bank fraud or wire fraud.
Bank fraud is a broad term that encompasses any type of false or misleading representation aimed at defrauding a federal lending institution. In simpler language, this means any type of scheme tailored to steal money from banks, credit unions, or other lenders, including:
- Falsifying loan applications or loan documents
- Hiding assets in offshore accounts
- Writing bad checks (hot checks)
- Money laundering
At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, we believe that early intervention is critical in federal white collar crime cases, such as bank fraud. That is because the government could spend months or even years collecting evidence before filing charges. Intervening before charges are formally filed could result in effective negotiations. Depending on the available leverage, I may be able to get the investigation dropped, charges reduced, or keep charges from being filed in federal court where conviction is usually more likely, and penalties usually more severe.
